Course Enrollment and Registration
Stanford Law School uses AXESS, the University’s online registration system, for preregistering and for adding and dropping classes. Instructors can open their courses to all interested students (open enrollment) or limit the enrollment of their courses in one of two ways: (1) by lottery or (2) by consent of the instructor. Course descriptions will be posted under the “Course Descriptions and Schedules” tab on the Law School’s Office of the Registrar web site. In mid-May, pre-registration instructions for autumn courses will be sent to incoming exchange students. Pre-registration deadlines for winter and spring quarter courses will be announced autumn quarter.
All students have approximately two weeks after the start of each quarter to add and drop courses and to finalize their schedule. Specific deadlines will be announced in advance by the Office of the Registrar.
